Oat binders had a twine tieing mechanism. I was told it was invented by a man named Applebee, or something like that.
Anyone know the history of the knot tieing device?

I have been told all my life that McCormick invented knotters. McCormick knotters are still used today on New Holland balers. There was an guy from another country that came out with some around the same time, don't remember if he was Applebee or who. I think both claim to have invented the binder.

The early reapers did not have a bundling device. The bundling and tying were by hand. I don't remember who built the first on but don't think it was McCormick. Cyrus McCormick developed the binder that automatically gathered and bundled the crop with wire. He then later used the twine tying mechanism which was invented by Apppleby.

Yes I have read that before, but when I went to high school they taught that McCormick invented the reaper. Is probably still in the books that way. I have read that Hussey did come out with his first. I have also read that a guy across the pond(not sure who or where) had one before either of these two. Just goes to show that history is not alway's taught as it should be.
